$4.2 TRILLION Obama expects your children and grandchildren to pay for... so you don't have to.

These 2 charts are compilations of Obama's own numbers and statements and the assessments thereof from the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center (TPC), The Committee for A Responsible Budget (CFARB) (which in turn used The Congressional Budget Office, the Tax Policy Center and Congress' Joint Committee on Taxation), the pro-Obama Lewin Group and The Cato Institute's economist Senior Fellow Alan Reynolds, who wrote this article in the Wall Street Journal earlier this week, which was taken from this analysis called "Taxes & Deficits - a 2008 Perspective."

Where no source is noted, data is from TPC, CFARB, Lewin Group, all their sources, Obama, or combinations thereof. OTHER NOTES, SOURCES LISTED AT END

$6.458 trillion in new revenues MINUS $9.307 trillion in new spending = $2.85 trillion shortfall unpaid-for.

$5.105 trillion in new revenues MINUS $9.307 trillion in new spending = $4.202 trillion shortfall unpaid-for.

Even if you allow Obama, TPC, CFARB, the "unverifiable" figures and blind acceptance of Obama's numbers, OBAMA'S OWN NUMBERS DON'T PAY FOR $2.85 TRILLION OF HIS NEW SPENDING OVER THE NEXT 10 YEARS.

However, including more objective financial analyses, Obama hasn't "paid for" an estimated $4.2 TRILLION to cover his new spending, over and above the current deficit and paying for Social Security and Medicare as they stand today.

Who do you really think he'll have to tax to make up that difference?

It's either you, or your children and grandchildren down the road.

Remember, Congress' ratings are worse than GWB's and Congress has never met a tax or spending increase it didn't love. Whether Obama stays in office past one term or not, you know that once the government gets its hands on all that spending, it won't give it back. Ever.

As Reynolds himself said in his analysis: "None of the Reynolds estimates is intended to be precise, nor should any 10-year budget estimates be considered more than rough approximations." In fact, several categories above can only extrapolate a 10 year estimate from a single year (2013). Obama's projections of savings or revenues in years both before and after 2013 could be either lower or higher. No one, not even Obama, can predict all of this. While it is imperfect, it is still the best way to evaluate the level of truth in Obama's audacious claim that "I pay for every dime."

The plain facts--the best estimates of many esteemed economists and tax experts
--indicate that Obama cannot pay for every new-spending dime he wants the government to spend over the next 4 to 10 years.

He cannot pay for 42 trillion dimes.

It all seems like funny money to talk in such huge numbers, but here it is with the zeroes:


That's four trillion, two-hundred and two billion dollars Obama cannot pay for over the next 10 years.

Even if he taxed "the rich" at 100% he couldn't pay for it all.

First he promised taxcuts and/or no tax increases to all those making under $250,000 a year. (For those who'd argue I have it wrong, ask 10 people on the street in any blue-leaning state. At least 9 will say that "Obama's going to cut my taxes or give me money back if I make under $250k" and he lets them believe that.)

Then that magic number moved down to "under $200,000."

Joe Biden moved it down to "under $150,000" just this past week.

Obama will have to keep lowering that safety ceiling, to under $100,000, under $75,000, under $50,000 perhaps, and yet the whole nation voting for him next Tuesday is willing to do that.

Don't take my word for it. Listen to the man in his own words:

"We all need to sacrifice...It's all gonna cost us...All of us are going to contribute, all of us are gonna have to sacrifice."
[at 8:50 and 9:35]

It's so ironic that Obama and his entranced followers rail against "the failed economic policies" of the last 8 years.

You're about to vote for another "failed economic policy," one which you can see how it will fail even BEFORE you vote for it.

You think the last 8 years were bad for you and for the economy? You ain't seen nothing yet.

Don't say you were not warned.

  1. "When CFARB 'ran [Obama's] numbers', they relied almost entirely on unverifiable numbers eagerly provided to them by the Obama campaign. That explains why their list of Mr. Obama's new spending plans is so much shorter than the National Taxpayers Union fully documented list. But nothing quite explains why even the vaguest promises to save money are recorded by CFARB as if they had substance.

    "Mr. Obama has also promised to spend more on 176 other programs, according to an 85-page list of campaign promises (actual quotations) compiled by the National Taxpayers Union Foundation. The NTUF was able to produce cost estimates for only 77 of the 176, so its estimate is low. Excluding the Obama health plan, the NTUF estimates that Mr. Obama would raise spending by $611.5 billion over the next five years; the 10-year total (aside from health) would surely exceed $1.4 trillion, because spending typically grows at least as quickly as nominal GDP."

  2. CAP & TRADE CARBON TAX: "The effect on U.S. families and firms would be like a steep tax on electricity, gasoline and energy-intensive products such as paper, plastic and aluminum."

  3. "In his acceptance speech at the Democratic convention on Aug. 28, Mr. Obama said, 'I've laid out how I'll pay for every dime -- by closing corporate loopholes and tax havens.' That comment refers to $924.1 billion over 10 years from what the TPC wisely labels 'unverifiable revenue raisers.' To put that huge figure in perspective, the Congressional Budget Office optimistically expects a total of $3.7 trillion from corporate taxes over that period. In other words, Mr. Obama is counting on increasing corporate tax collections by more than 25% simply by closing "loopholes" and complaining about foreign 'tax havens.' Nobody, including the Tax Policy Center, believes that is remotely feasible."

  4. Regarding saving by importing more foreign drugs and requiring more drug firm bargains: "Yet even proponents of [Obama's] approach such as The Lewin Group [ALSO SEE THIS POST] find that cannot save more than $6 billion a year." So this difference, $37 billion, comes from what Obama calls "'additional measures as necessary' (more taxes?)"

[apologies for keeping this non-extended format. I felt it was too important to split up into another page that far too many would not bother to click through to read.]

"I would now like to say a special word to women who have had an abortion...[many are] aware of the many factors which may have influenced your decision, and [do] not doubt that it was a painful and even shattering decision. The wound in your heart may not yet have healed. Certainly what happened was and remains terribly wrong. But do not give in to discouragement and do not lose hope. Try rather to understand what happened and face it honestly. If you have not already done so, give yourselves over with humility and trust to repentance. The Father of mercies is ready to give you his forgiveness and his peace...You will come to understand that nothing is definitively lost and you will also be able to ask forgiveness from your child..."

The writings expressed herein are protected expression by virtue of the First Amendment of the United States of America and by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, in particular Articles 18 and 19, signed by the U.S.A. in 1948:

1) The First Amendment: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

"The Free Exercise Clause reserves the right of American citizens to accept any religious belief and engage in religious rituals. The wording in the free-exercise clauses of state constitutions that religious “[o]pinion, expression of opinion, and practice were all expressly protected” by the Free Exercise Clause.[1] The clause protects not just religious beliefs but actions made on behalf of those beliefs. More importantly, the wording of state constitutions suggest that “free exercise envisions religiously compelled exemptions from at least some generally applicable laws.”[2] The Free Exercise Clause not only protects religious belief and expression; it also seems to allow for violation of laws, as long as that violation is made for religious reasons."

2) Article 18 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, signed by the U.S.A. in 1948, states: "Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance."

3) Article 19 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights: "Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers."
